Pokémon Masters Players Can Now Hatch Eggs to Team Up with Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle

DeNA Co., Ltd., in partnership with The Pokémon Company, has announced that Pokémon Masters players now have the ability to obtain Eggs that hatch into one of the three partner Pokémon from the Kanto region: Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle. Players can then pair their partner Pokémon with the game’s Main Character and battle alongside one another.
